Summers can be humid, but temperatures rarely exceed 90 degrees. Summer nights are balmy with onshore breezes. Winters are marvelous - warm, sunny and relatively dry with cool evenings.The average temperature is a perfect 74 degrees.

To the south you will pass some of the most spectacular scenery in Florida to as far as the Florida Keys. Cruise under the  Roosevelt Bridge and the Palm City Bridge and you are on the "jungle ride" to  Lake Okeechobee and the west coast of Florida. Across the Atlantic Ocean, the Bahamas are just hours away by boat from the St. Lucie Inlet. You may see a manatee or dolphins alongside your boat.
